Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 3-In this didactic tale, a young duck learns about courtesy as she accompanies young Song Hai on shopping errands for his family's Chinese Moon Festival celebration. As the boy buys fruits that are round like the moon, a paper lantern, mooncakes, rose flower incense, a Moon Palace poster, and special tea, Meiling learns about saying "Please" and "Thank you," helping the elderly, sharing, and taking turns. Maeno's large watercolors are a lovely, gentle accompaniment to a text that would be far more appealing as a simple story of a family's celebration, without the superfluous etiquette lessons. The endpapers are decorated with additional paintings and brief paragraphs with information on the Moon Festival and Chinese culture. A useful purchase for libraries in communities where there is great demand for materials on Chinese holidays.-Ginny Gustin, Santa Monica Public Library, CA

I recently read "Thank You Meiling" to my third grade class after reading Amy Tan's, "Moon Lady". The text was easy for them to understand. It blended a story about a duck who needed to learn how to share and information about the Chinese celebration of Moon Festival. It kept their interest and also informed without being just "factual". I am going to purchase a few copies to present as gifts to our daughter's teachers each year during autumn (Moon Festival time).

Once again the School Library Journal has given a negative review to
a book within the Advocacy series by the MarshMedia Press. They phone
this in with every book that is published in the series. However,
there is now over 20 books so someone must be enjoying them and finding
them useful. I am one of those.

I am a collector of children's books, most typically of the picture book
age group. This series is usually for the older end of that age group
and beyond. However, I became attracted to it because I love books
that present the landscape, architecture, and culture of different countries. Each book in this series takes place in a very distinct
locale. Most are from foreign countries, a few are in US cities such as
Boston and New Orleans. There are a few "misses" but most do a wonderful
job of depicting the locale. This book is particularly wonderful at it,
with page after page of a very Chinese setting.

For other users, each book has an ethical/moral reason for being. When I
want to teach my two grandchildren who are in this age group a particular
lesson I tend not to rely on a typical picture book story that may have an
ethic wrapped around it. Sometimes they "get it," sometimes not. These
books point it out and then have pointers for the teachers/parents/readers
to make sure that the child did in fact "get it." If this is didactic,
so be it. It does what it sets out to do. For those interested, teacher-
type guides and multimedia kits are available for each book. I have never
seen them so cannot speak to the effectiveness.

In addition to the moral of the story, there is more information on the
inside covers of the book and the back pages.

I was looking for books about the Chinese Lunar/Moon Festival and found this book. It does tell the reader about several of the traditions surrounding the holiday, but more importantly it talks about how to think of others in how you act and how to have good manners. It is presented in a way that Meiling, a duck, learns by following the boy in the family of the house where he lives. The duck is observant and the boy he follows is a good child, although in the end they both teach each other. The artwork is very well done and the decorations for the holiday are fun to see among the pages. I read this to my seven year old and he liked the story and we discussed what the duck learned after we finished the story. I'd recommend this to anyone trying to find some info about the holiday for children and as a general picture book with some nice lessons regarding thinking about others particularly children ages 4 to 8 years old. I am really happy we came across this book.

This book series is really well done and teaches valuable lessons! I am happy to have gotten this book when it was free because I couldn't have paid the asking price. I am very glad I was able to get it though!

Gorgeous illustrations and beautiful story. :-) Love the additional information at the end too. Beautiful book! There were just two instances where it was difficult to make out the text as in the digital version, the text seems printed over itself. Here are the sentences in question (XXX being the words that are difficult to decipher):

1) "The moon will look XXXXXX time of the year. Now is the time when we celebrate...." and

2) "The family sits outdoors, enjoying a special XXXXXXX make its way high into the sky, the Old One...."

Hope this helps. :-) This was a free download, thank you. :-)

In a small village in China, Meiling the duck learns courtesy and manners the day before Moon Festival.

I read this aloud to my 4, 7 and 10 year old and we loved it!! Five stars for illustrations and five stars for storyline.

Illustrations: these endearing illustrations look like they're hand crafted from color pencil and they add so much to the Chinese farm scenery, the village errand and a family celebrating the Moon Festival.

Storyline: told from the duck's point of view, Meiling learns to think of others before self and to say Thank You and Please as she follows her young master into the village to buy things for the Moon Festival. The story is cozy and warming and I HIGHLY recommend it.

This beautifully illustrated tale shows children how to interact with family members and the community respectfully. I liked the discussion questions at the end to facilitate conversations about showing respect and using manners. It was also nice to learn about Chinese culture and to have a list of other books on topics of children's social issues and virtues.
